Policy Matters: Congestion charging, performance-related pay and MPs’ other jobs – exploring some of the unintended consequences of policy
In this episode of Policy Matters, hosts Franz Buscha and Matt Dickson are joined by Colin Green, Professor of Economics at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. Colin’s research interests cover a range of areas in applied economics and public policy, including education, the labour market, health, personnel economics, and political science. We first hear from Colin about how the pandemic has been in Norway over the last year and how this compares to the experience in the UK and in his home country of Australia. This leads into discussion of Colin’s research on the impact of the London congestion charge on traffic accidents in the city and some of the intended and unintended consequences for pollution. Next, we hear about the relationship between the election of anti-immigration politicians in Italy and the location decisions of migrants, before Colin tells us about the positive long-term impacts immigration can have on an area’s social capital, exploiting a specific migration event into Italy during the 16th Century. Colin then sheds light on why the performance-related pay element in Franz’s employment contract might not be the best thing for his health, before the programme closes with a discussion of Colin’s research on the concerning relationships between MPs’ jobs outside parliament, their involvement in law-making, and the economic value of the firms for whom they work.

The Hypnotist: A Dolphin's Decision - Security or Freedom?
Adam creates a hypnosis session designed to clarify which value is important when making a decision. Many people prioritise safety and security over freedom and adventure - which can lead to regret in some cases. This hypnosis session uses a metaphor of a dolphin captured from the ocean and put into an aquarium to show that freedom can be perceived to be dangerous or risky which can lead to limitations. Which decision will the dolphin make? Security or Freedom?

This is Money: The 'escape velocity' Budget and the £3bn underpaid state pension victory
The Budget this week was notable for two things: Firstly, The Chancellor decided to delay settling the coronavirus bill to another day and, secondly, the true scale of the women's underpaid state pension scandal was laid bare at £3billion. The collossal short-changing of married women on their state pensions was uncovered by This is Money columnist Steve Webb and journalist Tanya Jefferies just over a year ago. Their investigations, campaigning and tenacity has paid off and now women affected should get what they are owed - to the tune of an astonishing £3billion, according to Budget documents. Tanya joins Georgie Frost, Lee Boyce and Simon Lambert to explain the issue on this week's podcast, as the team also trawl through the Budget to explain what it means for people. One day Britain might have to try to balance the books and pay the bill for the coronavirus rescue, but that day didn't arrive with the Budget. The Chancellor Rishi Sunak openly indulged in some stealth taxation by freezing personal allowances and income tax thresholds in the future and said corporation tax would rise, but kept the cash flowing to aid economic recovery. Furlough was extended, there will be an encore at the stamp duty holiday party, the business investment of Eat Out to Help Out was launched, and a new 5% deposit mortgage scheme has been launched (without being called Help-to-anything, so that's something at least). The self-employed also got some more help, with new entrepreneurs getting assistance, but bizarrely those who previously earned more than £50,000 as sole traders and paid lots of tax are still left out in the cold. The tax burden is set to rise but this was no austerity Budget and Britain's debt and deficit are scarily big. So will Rishi's third Budget in a year be what Britain's economy needs to achieve escape velocity as lockdown eases (and hopefully never comes back)?

The Bigger Picture: Did Rishi Sunak get the Budget right?
Political commentator Mike Indian looks at Rishi Sunak's March 2021 Budget, assesses the politics and the messaging behind it and asks if the Chancellor got it right. With most major measures heavily signalled in advance, there were few rabbits to be conjured from the top hat, making it difficult for the opposition to find an effective response. As Mike points out, after a year of Keir Starmer's leadership, people could be forgive for wondering what Labour stands for. He also looks north of the border at the ructions involving Alex Salmond and discusses the danger of effectively having a one-party state.
